Oliver Oram Founder and CEO, Chainvine
As a UK financial technology specialist, Oliver was used to wearing pin-striped suits and talking about money with the world’s largest companies. These days, as Founder and CEO of Swedish/UK Chainvine he mostly talks about wine and the value that be brought from the financial sector and put in a bottle. It is of course all about blockchain! The technology behind the bitcoin-hype, blockchain can be used for so many more things, not the least in the food sector. For those who aren’t familiar with the blockchain, it is a technology that enables you, in a totally transparent and tamper-proof way, to follow the way of (in this case) a bottle of wine. But it could be olive oil, chocolate, beef or anything else for that matter. The blockchain is simply one of the most promising opportunities in the field of getting rid of food fraud and for the wine sector it offers additional and abundant business opportunities. Technology, Money and Fraud, the ingredients for an action-drama movie. Or the future of food.
